Lesley and Walter Peterson
Qadim Afghans

Pictured with Jesus Llano and Merlyn, we are a family of Afghan Hound enthusiasts in Cape Coral, Florida and have been showing our dogs since 1991. Our dogs get to spend time running free in the yard each day, and spend each night sleeping in our bedroom with us. In short, our dogs are family members and beloved pets that just happen to go to dog shows from time to time!

Also, we are proud to be members of the Suncoast Afghan Hound Club of Florida and the Greater Fort Myers Dog Club.

"The Afghan Hound is an aristocrat, his whole appearance one of dignity and aloofness with no trace of plainness or coarseness. He has a straight front, proudly carried head, eyes gazing into the distance as if in memory of ages past. The striking characteristics of the breed-exotic, or 'Eastern,' expression, long silky topknot, peculiar coat pattern, very prominent hipbones, large feet, and the impression of a somewhat exaggerated bend in the stifle due to profuse trouserings-stand out clearly, giving the Afghan Hound the appearance of what he is, a king of dogs, that has held true to tradition throughout the ages."
